(12 oz bottle, twist off crown, best by date OCT0118... poured into a straight-sided clear glass mug)

L: impeccably-clear, reddish, tea-colored liquid; finger-width high foam stand on pour, breaks down to loose collar... virtually no lacing

S: relatively heavy malt-forward aromas, certainly with some medium crystal malt coming through as well as a slight hint of toasted grain - not altogether too dissimilar than the Bass ale they make over in New England... perhaps a faint earthy, piney hop squeaking out... overall potency moderate

T: relatively-rich mid-dark malt character, featuring a medium-dark caramel up front, dry in the finish, with a mild-moderate biting hop bitterness providing a little balance, all rounded out by a subtle black-peppery / smoky edge... a couple sips in though, the aftertaste basically comes across like a malt liquor with some caramel coloring/flavoring added

F: light-medium bodied (thicker at its back end) to its body with soft sizzle in its carbonation (burps do occur)... somewhat dry, but not necessarily crisp - couldn't see it cutting through fatty foods all that sharply

O: arguably drinks like in between an ale and lager; better than I'd expected it to be (having last had this over 20 years ago)... I could see having one of these again if it was the best thing available, but would best opt to have a pint with a bacon burger and some steak fries (A1 for dipping)... lumped into the category it's in, Yuengling is superior, because at least that has some subtly unique character, while this tastes very much like a nondescript, industrial concoction

Always my “take to the gathering” beer. Holidays, family events and cookouts. It’s always a good tilt
